  • “The cottage is lovely and suited us well.”

    It was very useful having the tumble dryer!

    It was very useful having the tumble dryer! The parking at the front of the property is only suitable for a medium sized car and not a large 4 x 4 as it overhangs the neighbours parking so we parked in the main car park. Overall a comfortable and cost cottage.

About the location


Kingsbridge 7 miles; Dartmouth 21 miles; Plymouth 24 miles; Paignton 26 miles.

Salcombe is a popular destination for walkers and families looking for a holiday by the sea and was once a major port. There are two pretty beaches within a short distance, North Sands and South Sands and further on is the National Trust property Overbeck’s where you can wander through the subtropical gardens. Why not have a more adventurous day and try out the watersports available on the estuary including surfing, kayaking or a more leisurely boat trip? Whilst staying in Salcombe you must take advantage of the locally sourced seafood which is served in many of the restaurants, pubs, cafés and delicatessens. The southern tip of Devon provides some spectacular scenery and picturesque vistas with a number of sandy beaches, lovely villages with thatched cottages and some fantastic opportunities for walking, including the South West Coast path.

For reasons of comfort the accommodation is not recommended for more than four adults in any one party.

No pets permitted.

The door of the top bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs and therefore not suitable for under 5's. You are welcome to bring your own stairgate.

Please note the rear garden has shared access to the neighbouring properties and is not enclosed.
